On our 3rd visit, Chef Keith Rhodes leaves no doubt he was a finalist on Iron Chef. We hadn't been in a while, but WOW, we enjoyed our Honeyed/Soy Salmon over rice noodles with Chinese vegetables. The flavor splashed in your mouth. Also enjoyed our wines selections, and for those that want to try small brewery beers, they have some... More

The strip mall location belies the fact that this is the hands down best restaurant in the Cape Fear region. The food is absolutely fresh and inspired. The service is impeccable. This is the meal that you don't want to be over. A reservation is a must have. The only caveat is that those whose palates crave only the traditional... More

Everything we had was SO tasty! Since the seafood is fresh, they did run out... More

Located along a busy strip of auto dealers, plumbing supplies and furniture stores is this gem tucked into a tiny strip (look for the blue awnings). We visited on a quiet Friday night and were treated to a wonderful meal. The menu offered a nice variety of fish, duck and pork, with several inviting specials. Crab Cakes are the best... More

Food was amazing, as you cannot tell that the place you pull into is going to have food that is as good if not better than seafood you would get in the biggest cities in the US. Unique offerings with tremendous flavor and presentation. Real "DIAMOND in the ROUGH"

I got the lobster lobster lobster which was good but the lobster bisque it said it came with that I was... More

Slightly expensive, but exquisite splurge. Sweet potato/ spinach salad, bread dipped in pesto oil, lovely scallops over mussels in sweet potato purée. Incredible!

Catch is clearly the best "modern" seafood restaurant in the area. We started with a wonderful local shrimp ceviche which had the perfect balance of acidity and tasted like the shrimp were minutes from the sea. Our entrees were both specials and were examples of why you go out to a fine restaurant. I had the seared tuna with a... More

Our second visit to this charming restaurant off the beaten path in Wilmington. A low key friendly ambiance in a fairly small but well laid out venue. Intimate but not crowded together. Creative seafood oriented menu with beautiful presentation. I had the local grouper...tender and flavorful. Surprisingly varied wine list too. A keeper!
